    Almost ridiculously easy to make, this soup is based on a recipe from "S.O.U.P.S. - Seattle's Own Undeniably Perfect Soups" by Michael Congdon and is my absolute favorite soup. Although it is titled as "southwestern," this soup tastes very much like my favorite Indian dish of Chicken Korma, a mild, flavorful, non-spicy curry. I also use the soup as a baking sauce for chicken breasts, thighs, and cubed tofu - very tasty!

    Recipe #103950

    This is the first of my Pantry Challenge recipes. I am making a dish from whatever I have at home already - those ingredients which are "just waiting around." This soup came out quite nicely, with a great texture and a wonderfully creamy and rich taste! The leftovers didn't last long, either... hubby and I ended up "fighting" over who got the last bit. :)

    Recipe #104725

    I didn't learn this method by reading it any of Julia's books, but rather by watching her show. Some of my earliest memories are of sitting with my mother as a little girl, watching Julia on the television. I'd even thought for the longest time that Mom had named me after her! (It wasn't until a couple of years ago that I found out differently, but I still think of my name as Julia's tribute.) I recently went to the Smithsonian Museum of American History in Washington DC and was delighted to discover her kitchen preserved there - I spent a very, very long time just standing there, soaking in as much of her as I could. So, whenever you need garlic in a recipe and you want it nice and soft and oh-so-flavorful, prepare it this way!

    Recipe #104441

    Rich, savory scalloped potatoes that you'll want to make again and again! Careful, though - they're far from lowfat. :) Based on a recipe from Food and Wine Magazine.

    Recipe #105027

    Delicious, warm, and rich, this dish is easy to prepare. I consider it a comfort food. It travels well, too, so is good for taking along to a friend's house or potlucks.

    Recipe #106829

    From Julia Child's "Way To Cook" - "to be used as a garnish, or to be pureed and used in sauces or other purees."

    Recipe #108744

    Mr. Price's "Treasury of Great Recipes" is a wonderful cookbook that I'm privileged to have on my shelf! The style of recipe format is rather different from what we're used to these days, so I'm translating for a more modern audience. Posted by request. Times do not include overnight chilling, but do include chilling for the lettuce.

    Recipe #108983

    The FoodTV chef Giada De Laurentiis prepared this recently on her show "Everyday Italian." The episode featured a "Polenta Party" but this light cake sounded so much like it could be a great addition to Thanksgiving or Christmas menus that I wanted to get it down and post it for folks that might want it for their holiday tables. :) It would also be good for Easter! We made the cake for a recent Italian dinner party, and it was a nice, light ending to the meal.

    Recipe #108984

    The Herbfarm Restaurant is located in Woodinville, Washington. Each week, the award-winning restaurant chooses the best from farm, forest, and sea to create thematic 9-course dinners showcasing the Pacific Northwest. In October 2001, Gourmet Magazine ranked The Herbfarm among "America's Best 50 Restaurants."
